What Will My Child Be Learning About This Half Term?

Friday 1st March 2024 - Week 2

 

There has been some fantastic learning in Year 3 this week. We have been particularly impressed with the work produced in Computing. The children have had their first opportunity to work with iMotion on the iPads. They used whiteboards to create their own mini-animations. We think you will agree, they are amazing for their first attempt.

Friday 23rd February 2024 - Week 1

 

Our new unit of work in Physical Education is tennis. This week, just before the hail hit, we managed to get outside and start our learning. We worked on our racket control and were impressed with how much easier it is to control the ball now we are in Year 3.

Friday 9th February 2024 - Week 6

 

This week, we filmed our final performances in Music. We have been learning about traditional Indian music and learned to perform a song called 'Anile'. We sang the lyrics and learned to play the tune on glockenspiels.

Friday 2nd February 2024 - Week 5

 

In Religious Education, we have been learning about the Hindu festival of Holi. This week, after learning about how the festival is celebrated and the story behind it, we took part in sensory experiences. We looked at photos or people celebrating the festival and wrote down our observations. Using paint, we created a whole class picture using bright colours. Using the sense of smell, we discussed the traditional yogurt drink, Lassi, and smelled ingredients that could be used to create it. Our final experience focused on the sense of hearing, and we listened to traditional Indian music whilst exploring the drums and creating our own beat. We had a great time.

Friday 26th January 2024 - Week 4

 

In Computing, we are learning to program using Scratch. We have been learning how the different blocks work and piecing them together to form algorithms. We have learned how to make our sprites move and also how to add sound and backgrounds to our projects.

Friday 19th January 2024 - Week 3

 

In Maths, we have been exploring 3D shapes. We use concrete manipulatives to explore each shape's properties and were able to count the number of vertices, faces and edges and record this on a table. Using nets and other resources, we challenged ourselves to create different 3D shapes. 

Friday 12th January 2024 - Week 2

 

In Science, we have been exploring different rocks. This week we carried out an investigation to test: durability, whether they float or sink and whether they react to vinegar being dripped on them. We were blown away to see the bubbles forming on the chalk when we added vinegar. Using labelled diagrams, we were able to present our findings.

Friday 5th January 2024 - Week 1 - Spring Term

 

Happy New Year to all of our wonderful families!

 

We have had a fabulous start to the new year. Spring term kicked off with a visit from Open Box who introduced us to 'Early Man'. With the opportunity to role play, and new information galore, we delved into our new topic about the stone age.

 

In English, we explored cave paintings and how they may have been created. In a darkened classroom, with cave sound effects surrounding us, we entered our own caves (under our tables) and created our own cave paintings.

Friday 8th December 2023 - Week 13

 

In Guided Reading, we have been exploring performance poetry. We watched some famous poets performing their own poetry and looked for common features to engage the listener. In groups, we then practised performing a section of a poem before piecing it together as a whole class performance. You can watch our performances here: https://balksbury-inf-hants.primarysite.media/playlist/year-3-performance-poetry

Friday 1st December 2023 - Week 12

 

In Science, we had the opportunity to apply our knowledge of nutrition and diet to making a leaflet on healthy/balanced lunches. We were able to include useful information and illustrate our work to engage the reader.

In dance, we continued to practise our 'Balksbury Come Dancing' dance. Our teachers are really impressed with how we have learned the routine and we can't wait to share it with you.

Friday 24th November 2023 - Week 11

 

We have continued with our sewing in Design and Technology. This week, we cut out the shapes we created when planning our designs and started the process of sewing them on to our chosen cushion cover.

Friday 17th November 2023 - Week 10

 

We spent most of today being Scientists. We worked with Miss Nield to carry out some research into different diets. Working in teams, we gathered information and then presented it to the rest of the class.

We also worked with Mrs Whittington to start our longitudinal study. Making the most out of the sunshine, we went outside and planted 101 bulbs in our planter. We will monitor these over time to observe the changes. We can't wait to see what grows.

Friday 10th November 2023 - Week 9

 

In Design and Technology, we have started to design our cushions. We had to think creatively and consider how to ensure that it will be simple enough to sew. Our teachers were really impressed with how we demonstrated our value of 'perseverance' through our learning. We were able to thread the needle and learn to cross stitch.

Friday 3rd November 2023 - Week 8

 

This week, we kicked off our North America Geography topic with a 'trip' to New York. Using the VR headsets, we explored the city and its physical and human features before moving on to Canada. The session stirred great excitement and we are looking forward to embracing our new unit of learning.

Friday 20th October 2023 - Week 7

 

This week, we finished our wonderful 'Dream Giver' writing based on the short animation. We worked so hard to engage the reader and our use of vocabulary has been phenomenal. Here are some samples from across the year group.

 

Friday 6th October 2023: Week 5

Friday 29th September 2023: Week 4

 

Our week started with the excitement of discovering a hedgehog living under the bug house in the Year 3 garden area. The children were fascinated to see the hedgehog up close as it built a nest around itself.

In Art this week, we have produced some stunning artwork. We are enjoying the technique of pointillism, and have been exploring and recreating City of London photographic scenes.

In Gymnastics, we have refined our basic shapes and explored patch and point balances. Working in small groups, we created some wonderful balances.

Friday 22nd September 2023: Week 3

 

We have had another fabulous week in Year 3. In Physical Education, we have been developing our hockey skills. We have learned how to hold and control a hockey stick and have been able to dribble and pass the ball.

 

In Science, we have been learning about the human skeleton. We worked in teams to put together a skeleton and label some of the key parts and their function.  

Friday 15th September 2023: Week 2

 

This week, we have been working hard on our descriptive writing. Our teachers have been blown away by our use of vocabulary such as: vast, magnificent, tsunami and vulnerable. We look forward to sharing our finished work soon.

In Religious Education, we have explored the concept of imagination. We used half-images and let our imaginations run wild completing them. Here are some of our creations.

Friday 8th September 2023: Week 1

 

Welcome back! Year 3 have settled beautifully - we are so impressed.

 

This week, we have been exploring pointillism in Art and Design. The work we have produced has been stunning. The children have also enjoyed learning the David Bowie ballad: Space Oddity in Music. It has been wonderful to hear their enthusiasm for a classic song. They have been singing beautifully.

Friday 7th July - Week 5

 

This week, we have celebrated the arts. In our year group, we focused on South America and the artist Romero Britto. We looked at his artwork, which is fun, vibrant pop art, and then we created a group piece as a whole class using different materials. Our final outcome was an individual pot using the technique of decoupage.

 

Across the week, we participated in many workshops including: Bollywood, street dance, theatre and drumming.

 

We enjoyed sharing our work with you at the Arts Festival - we hope that you enjoyed it too!

Friday 30th June 2023 - Week 4

 

Another busy and exciting week in Year 3. We started our week by meeting our new Year 4 teachers - we are more than ready for the next step on our journey through the federation.

 

Through our Design and Technology learning, we planned, created, tasted and evaluated our seasonal tarts. Some of us were very adventurous and chose to use all ingredients available: jam, strawberries, tomatoes, cheese, mint and basil. First, we created the pastry - measuring, stirring, mixing, rolling and cutting. It was a messy job but we loved it! We then selected and cut our toppings and decided how we would like to arrange them. They looked delicious! Once baked, we were able to taste and evaluate them.

 

We also took a quick trip to Brazil! The virtual reality headsets allowed us to travel to South America to explore this beautiful country. We were able to identify physical and human features to link in with our learning in Geography.

Friday 23rd June 2023 - Week 3

 

What a busy and exciting week we've had in Year 3! Our trip to Trinley Estate was a huge success. Not only did we have lots of fun but the children were exceptionally well behaved - a true credit to the federation and their families. In the woods, the children worked together to gather resources to build dens. We were so impressed with how they worked together - truly wonderful team work. In the arboretum, the children spent time exploring their surroundings. They were able to explore what was growing there, hunt for and identify mini-beasts and birds and they spent time taking in their surroundings by drawing for pleasure. They all had the opportunity to go on a tractor ride and learn about the crops growing on the farm and the use of these in food production. 

 

Friday 16th June 2023 - Week 2

 

We have enjoyed getting stuck into our Shakespeare English learning journey this week. Making the most out of the glorious weather, we have been outside and recreated scenes from the play. It has been wonderful to see the connections being made between Julius Caesar and our learning in History last term. 

In Design and Technology, we have been tasting different ingredients and considering their nutritional value in preparation for designing our tarts.

Friday 9th June 2023 - Week 1

 

This week, we started our new Science unit: Forces and Magnets. We explored friction and tested the movement and distance travelled by toy cars on different surfaces. Oak class also gathered baby spider plants from across the federation and began the process of planting them.

Friday 26th May 2023: Week 6

 

What a fantastic end to the half term! We had an amazing school trip to Butser Ancient Farm. The children were so excited and their behaviour was exemplary - a true credit to us all. We explored a Roman villa, took part in an archaeological dig and made jewellery from sheep's wool and metal. 

Friday 19th May 2023: Week 5

 

We have been 'getting creative' this week. Making the most of the dry weather, we took our Art and Design outside and began the process of building our sculptures. It was messy business but we had so much fun!

 

In PE, we played a mini game of rounders. The teachers were so impressed with how we worked together. Not only did we show excellent skill and sportsmanship, but we also created our own rules to ensure that everyone had a turn at batting.

Friday 12th May 2023: Week 4

 

Excitement bubbled over this week, as we finally got back in the pool! The rain eased in time for our session and the pool was gloriously warm. 

In Health and Wellbeing, we have been discussing different scenarios and how we might react if we were put in the same situation. We formed a 'yes' side of the room and a 'no' side and shared and explained our opinions. Some of us switched sides when we heard the opinions of others. We were fabulous listeners and were able to respectfully challenge the views of others.

Friday 5th May 2023: Week 3

 

In History, we have been exploring artefacts from the Roman era and learning about the legacy left behind. As well as looking at maps of Roman roads, wax tablets to write on and Roman games, we were highly amused by the discovery that a sponge on a stick was the Roman version of toilet paper! We also had the chance to dress up in Roman and Celtic clothing.

Friday 28th April 2023: Week 2

 

In Art and Design, we created our own mini-sculptures using a stick and other left over resources. We impressed our teachers with our creativity and they are excited to see what we produce for our final piece of the unit.

 

In Science, we monitored our longitudinal study. We have some lovely flowers growing in our raised bed. We took the time to draw and label what is currently growing.

 

During our indoor PE session, we played a variety of team building games. Our favourite activity was making letter shapes within our teams, using our bodies.

Friday 21st April 2023: Week 1

 

What a wonderful week! The children have returned to school eager to learn and full of enthusiasm. 

 

In English, an ancient briefcase arrived full of mysterious objects appeared in the classroom. The children were able to discuss the clues within to form a prediction about the title of our new book: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. They made some fantastic connections between the words and clues given.

 

We had a visit from a tennis coach this week. He worked with us exploring tennis skills through fun activities.

 

In Science, we explored leaves and their features/functions. We collected leaves and sorted them using a carroll diagram. We were able to use the microscopes to gain a closer look and created a labelled diagram to show what we could see. 

Friday 31st March 2023: Week 6

 

What an exciting last week of term! We have continued to be very busy in our learning.

 

Today, we brought in our colourful clothes ready to perform our Holi dance. We have thoroughly enjoyed choreographing our own dance routines and watching traditional Indian dances. Click here to see our videos

 

In Maths, we have been exploring properties of shapes. This week, we have focused on angles and directions. We worked together to demonstrate our understanding by guiding each other around a maze in the classroom.

Friday 24th March 2023: Week 5

 

In English this week, we have been writing setting descriptions for an image of a stormy sea. We have challenged ourselves with our sentence structure and have blown our teachers away with our choice of powerful vocabulary.

 

We were so excited to try out the new gym equipment this week. We took it in turns and really showed the federated values through our play.

 

In computing, we have continued to work on building and improving our iron age animations with our partners. We have explored adding text and sounds to further develop our work.

Free Reading Friday

 

The children in Year 3 love reading and relish the opportunity to share their reading with others across the federation. Some of them chose to read newspapers and magazines this week and they thoroughly enjoyed discussing them with each other.

World Book Day

 

The children looked fantastic in their costumes - everyone went to so much effort. The day was a huge success.

Through the story of 'The Night Gardner', the children wrote a newspaper front page to report on the mystery of the animal shaped trees. The writing produced was fantastic and they were fascinated by the story.

In the afternoon, they created bonsai trees using water colours which were stunning.

Across the day, the children had the opportunity to share a story with children in other year groups which is always exciting. 

Hockey

 

The children are thoroughly enjoying learning the skills needed in hockey. They are able to dribble the ball with control and can make accurate passes.

Holi Experience - Religious Education

 

Year 3 have been learning about the Hindu festival of Holi. They had stations set out around the classroom to explore:

 

- Drums - making music whilst listening to traditional Indian music

- Colour - finger painting using different colours. They then wrote around the painting how the colours made them feel

- Pictures - the children looked at a selection of pictures taken during Holi and wrote their thoughts and feelings down around them

- Lassi - the children tasted a traditional dish made from yoghurt and mango.

 

The experiences were thoroughly enjoyed by all.

 

Virtual Reality Cave Experience

 

The children used the VR headsets to explore two different caves. Whilst exploring the caves, they wrote down adjectives they could use to describe what they could see and how it made them feel. They then used this vocabulary bank to write a setting description.

Cave Paintings

 

In English, we have been exploring the book: The Stone Age Boy. We looked at cave paintings and used pastels and chalks to create our own. These were then used to inspire a vocabulary bank to help us with our writing.

3D Shapes

 

We have been exploring 3D shapes and creating our own using a variety of resources. 

Measuring in Maths

 

We have been exploring length, capacity and mass in Maths. We thoroughly enjoyed the practical element of our learning and working with our friends.

Chinese Folk Music

 

In Music, we have been exploring Pentatonic melodies and composition. We have listened to a range of pieces of Chinese folk music and understand how Chinese New Year is celebrated. We have used the glockenspiels to compose our own pentatonic melodies. Using these melodies, we were able to recreate the celebration of Chinese New Year using masks we had made.

Trip to Rooksbury Mill

 

This week, we carried out some fieldwork for our Geography unit: Rivers. We were able to identify some of the features of a river we have been learning about in class. We worked in groups to gather data, use our maps, OS symbol list and a compass. When we arrived back at school, we presented our data in our books.

Science

 

In Science, we are exploring light and shadows. We have carried out an experiment to prove that you need light in order to see. In our groups, we had a box which contained a hole to look through, but we could not see anything. We added additional holes, one at a time, and recorded our findings. As we let in more light, we began to see what our box contained.

We have also explored shadows, how we can create them and how they change as we move.

Maths Outdoors

 

This week in Maths, we have been exploring multiplication and division facts. We have focused on the three and four times tables and have been outside using natural resources to make arrays. In the classroom, we applied this understanding by creating pictorial representations of arrays. These, along with other methods, then helped us with solving word problems.

Gathering and Presenting Data in Mathematics

 

The children have had a wonderful time this week, working in teams to gather and present information. They have used tally charts, pictograms and bar graphs. Super team work Year 3!

Into the Forest

 

In English, the children have been on a scavenger hunt in the woods, searching for fairytale characters. They then used their senses to create a vocabulary bank. They gathered some wonderful vocabulary: gloomy, terrifying, mysterious - they thoroughly enjoyed exploring language. 

Art - Pointillism

Year 3 have been exploring the technique of pointillism. They used water colour pencils to create a self-portrait.

 

Week 1

 

Wow! What an amazing first week! We have been so impressed with how the children have settled and with how quickly they have adapted to their new routines - they are a credit to you. 

 

This week, we have started our first English journey based on the short animation 'Dreamgiver' (feel free to google it if you want to watch). The children were instantly hooked and created their own dreams - they were so imaginative. In Maths, the children have been exploring three-digit numbers using concrete resources. We have been really impressed with their understanding and their ability to solve problems and explain their reasoning.

 

Following the sad news of the death of our Queen, the children reflected on her life and produced some beautiful art work.

 

Well done Year 3 - keep up the super work!

 

Above, you will find an overview of this half-term's learning.

The Iron Man

In English this half term, we have really enjoyed reading the book The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We started our learning journey by exploring different "iron" objects and using them to create our own Iron Giants.

Exploring Fractions

The Street Beneath My Feet

 

In English, Year 3 have been exploring the stunning creative non-fiction book 'The Street Beneath My Feet'. To kick start the unit, the children searched for clues and formed predictions using the evidence they had gathered. They were blown away by the book and how it has been created. Through the book, the children explored presentational devices and compared these to those used in other books. They then selected the devices they liked to apply their knowledge and understanding (from both English and Science learning) to create their own non-chronological report about what can be found under the ground.

Stone Age Boy

 

Year 3 are thoroughly enjoying their English unit based on the book 'Stone Age Boy'. They were inspired by the illustrations and created their own cave paintings. They then used these to stimulate the creation of a vocabulary bank to support their writing.

Cave Paintings

Week 2 

 

Another fabulous week in Year 3. We started our week with sports coaches Tom and Tom (we won't forget their names at least), where they introduced us to hockey. We were amazing! Not only were we fantastic listeners, but we picked up the required skills really quickly.

In Science, we have been learning about bones and how they vary in size depending on who/what they belong to. We then carried out an experiment in groups, exploring how the diameter of a paper tube affected the amount of weight it could support.

Week 1 

We are so proud of the children and how quickly they have settled into their new classes - they have blown us away!

 

We have had a very busy week getting to know our adults and our new classmates and have quickly found our way around the junior school building (and into the swimming pool!).

In Maths, we have been using concrete resources to explore place value. We were 'whizzy mathematicians' and enjoyed looking at 3-digit numbers.

We have had many opportunities to use drama within English and Health and Wellbeing. Our new English unit, based on the short animation 'Dream Giver', is very exciting and we have been able to make some fantastic comparisons between the film and extracts from The BFG by Roald Dahl.

In Geography, we have been using the atlases to locate and identify the oceans and continents. We worked so well with our partners.

15th July 2021 -Italian day! We had such fun today, cooking and eating pasta with courgettes (that we actually grew in our poly tunnel). It was delicious. We then made our own pizza's. We stretched and rolled out the dough and added our own toppings as part of our DT work.

13th July: This week we showed how much we learnt about magnets and forces by designing and making our own magnetic games.

7th July: This week we have been learning to play tunes on a glockenspiel. A bit noisy but great fun!

28th June 2021:Science - In our Forces and Magnets topic, we have been investigating the invisible magnetic force and discovering how magnets can both attract and repel.

A message from the staff at Balksbury

 

Good morning Ash, Elm and Oak classes,

We hope you are still having fun at home and had a good time at Easter. The weather has been good and is set to get even better so try and enjoy the garden if you can or when you get out for your daily exercise.

 

We have been thinking of some great work for you to do this term and you will find it in the new folder at the top, 'Summer term week 1.'

You can also go on the new BBC learning page- BBC Schools out, Learnings not !

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/levels/zbr9wmn

It looks really great with some fab 20 minute lessons.

 

Take care and have fun. We miss you all!

 

Mrs Parker, Mrs Jamieson and Mrs Liddell

 

Monday 6th April 2020

Good morning everyone. This week we have got some fun Easter activities for you to have a go at. Don't forget to have a look at your longitudinal study if you have started. If not have a go!

You may like to have a go at making some Easter treats (you will need an adult to help you). If you haven't got all the ingredients, you can be creative e.g. cornflakes or rice crispies instead of shredded wheat.

These eggy words are fun . Why not draw a picture for each one. Can you think of anymore? Why not write an eggciting story using some eggy words.

Here are a few short stories and poems you may like to read. Why not have a go at writing your own.

You may still like to do some maths.

Wednesday 1st April:

Good morning Ash, Elm and Oak classes, we hope you are still enjoying yourselves and working hard from home.

Here are some more tasks to keep you learning and having fun.

English: Read the myth Arachne the Spinner. You could also write the story in your own words with illustrations.

Here are the year 3/4 spelling word list. Why not take 5 or 10 each week and learn them. You could make pyramid words, write the letters in different colours, use them in sentences. Any way that helps you remember them.

Guided Reading: Read the Greek myth and complete the tasks.

Science: See how much you have learnt in your 'Materials' topic by having a go at the year 3 quiz. Answers attached.

History: Why not draw or even make your own Iron Age village. Here are some ideas.

 

Thursday 26th March 2020.

Hello lovely year 3s. We hope you are enjoying your home school. As the weather has been so lovely, we hope that you have taken the opportunity to get some fresh air. Why not start a Longitudinal study of your own. Choose an area of the garden to study and look at the changes that occur each week. You could draw some pictures or take photos. It would be really great to share these when we get back to school. If you can't get out, you could see the changes from your window. 

 

Dear Parents/Carers,
Some children may be finding this time at home very confusing, they may be anxious, they may not quite understand why they are unable to go out and play with their friends. Here are some stories that will hopefully help them understand some of the issues that they are having to deal with.
I will also be updating weekly with some ideas of ways to cope with anxiety and ways to encourage the children to have a healthy positive mind.
I understand that some of you may not have access to a printer, therefore I will include activities that can be done without one.
Take care
Mrs Whatley - ELSA
 
 

Hello year 3s. We hope that you are enjoying your learning pack that you received on Friday. Remember to keep learning and having fun while you are off. You could try and start your day with a reading activity, followed by some English and then timetable yourself in a play time. After play you could do a maths activity from the pack and also go onto Rockstars. After lunch you could do one of the following Science, History, Geography, RE, Art or PE. 

We will be posting regular extra ideas on the website so keep checking everyday.

Happy learning

Mrs Parker and Miss Brown
